From the soaring peaks of the Julian Alps and the subterranean world of the Postojna Caves, to sparkling Lake Bled with a tiny Baroque chapel on a picturesque island and dramatic Bled Castle looming above and the beautiful Adriatic coast, Slovenia has it all. In Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, Baroque facades mix with Art Nouveau splendours and the 20th century architecture of native Jože Plečnik.
Carmen Luscombe has been organising her tours for members of the Devon Federation of Women’s Institutes with Tailored Travel for many years now. Her first tour was to Norfolk in 2011. With a tour every year since and three in 2016 and another three planned for 2017, she’s obviously doing tours which are popular with her members. So we’ve asked Carmen for her thoughts on the experience and insight she has gained from being a successful Group Organiser.
Whether with your group or your family, we all know how important a holiday can be. For some it is something they hear about but don’t experience. So for the third year running we have taken a group of families from Peckham on a 6 day summer holiday to enjoy what we hope is the experience of a lifetime. This year we took 39 children and 18 adults to Devon. Last year 51 travelled to Northumbria and in 2014 it was 37 to Norfolk. We cover the cost of everything including that all important seaside ice cream!
Now that the Autumn tours have been and gone, all at Tailored Travel have a chance to draw breath. But now it’s that bit quieter, it’s the perfect time for us to make some planned changes. So Rebecca has moved across from Operations to work alongside Michael and Damian in the Sales Department. With her move, we decided to expand the Operations Department and in October were delighted to welcome new recruits Jana and Vasiliki.
